Best Stocks To Own For 2019: Calumet Specialty Products Partners L.P.(CLMT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Whenever a company is in the midst of a multiyear turnaround plan like Calumet Specialty Products Partners (NASDAQ:CLMT), some quarters are going to show more progress than others. This past quarter was one of those less noticeable quarters as many of the moves it made were a detriment to the bottom line. Nevertheless, there were some reasons investors should be satisfied with what Calumet did in the quarter.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ:CLMT) is attempting to shift gears as it refocuses around higher-margin refined chemicals products. The plan sounds good on paper, and the independent refiner appears to be making progress. However, after a doubling of the price over the past year, most investors need to think carefully before jumping on this bandwagon. Here’s why.

They’ve had very different trajectories in the last year, with the former losing 35% and the latter gaining 108%. However, the biggest problem facing each business is the same: suffocating debt.

Best Warren Buffett Stocks To Own Right Now

All the doom and gloom surrounding Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), which centers primarily on weak demand for its flagship iPhone X and the growing saturation in the smartphone market, hasn’t fazed one famed investor. Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) CEO Warren Buffett, who is arguably one of the most well-known and successful investors of all time, has continued to buy massive caches of the iPhone maker’s stock.

Buffett added a mind-boggling 75 million Apple shares last quarter — on top of the 165.3 million shares Berkshire already owned — increasing its share count by a whopping 45%. That brings the company’s total stake in Apple up to about 5% of shares.

If the naysayers are right, why does the Oracle of Omaha continue stocking up on Apple’s shares?

    Monday wasn’t a good day for the stock market, as most major benchmarks gave up early gains to finish lower. Investors continued to be nervous about interest rates, which appear to be on the rise as a strong earnings season continues. Consistently climbing oil prices also have had a mixed impact on market sentiment, with energy investors generally liking the trend while others worry about the potential inflationary impact that higher costs could bring. Adding to the gloom was bad news about some individual companies that sent their shares sharply lower. Chicago Bridge & Iron (NYSE:CBI), Akorn (NASDAQ:AKRX), and Flotek (NYSE:FTK) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

It’s not enough to put in automatic features in retirement plans if those features don’t push people into saving at a high enough rate, or to take an active role in choosing investments for their account.

That’s according to a report in Psychology Today, which says that in fact automatic features may be deceiving participants into thinking that their retirement is taken care of, in the way a defined benefit pension once took care of the monthly income needs of retirees.

However, the opposite is true — and in fact people often completely lose sight of the fact that they are fully responsible for the outcome of their retirement savings, while that was not the case for pension plans.

Auto-features have resulted in more people saving for retirement, but they’re not saving enough.

    This has created some pretty compelling bargains in the real-estate sector. One in particular that I bought more of recently was 3.8%-yielding Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), which in late February dipped below $100 per share for the first time since 2016 after weak results from a competitor spooked investors and caused all data-center REITs to plunge.

  • [By Matthew Frankel]

    Our next company, Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), ticker symbol DLR. This is really a play on data.

    Frankel: In articles, I refer to Digital Realty as the tech stock that no one thinks of as a tech stock. It’s a REIT. They own data centers, which, if you’re not familiar, these are big buildings that house servers and other networking equipment. The idea is that high-tech companies — think IBM, Facebook, things like that — need secure and reliable places to store all the data that’s flowing through them. That’s where Digital Realty and the whole concept of data centers come in.
